Do you like music? Do you like entropy? Do you have Spotify? If so, then go here
to listen to a song chosen completely at random. It might even be good!
is an Internet resource that brings genuine
random numbers, generated
by a process fundamentally governed by the inherent uncertainty in the quantum mechanical laws of nature, directly to your computer in a variety of forms. HotBits
are generated by timing successive pairs of radioactive decays detected
by a Geiger-Müller tube interfaced to a computer. (Warning: random sounds.)
Need to name a character? Use this random name generator
. Hit refresh to, uh, refresh. Explanation here
Metafilterinkarationicizes! By analyising the frequency of pairs of letters in 45,402 different words it is possible to generate new words which, although, don't have any meaning are reasonably syntatically correct.
Enjoy the random word generator.
I've got a pseudo machine
. I know that we're all living in the world of truth, light and clarity these days, but as a bad casualty of one jargon-ridden film studies course in 1981-82, I loved this little program. Less wieldy than the old classic, the postmodern generator
. Has anyone noticed that Chip from the Corrections
is a classic of the type - "assistant professor of textual artefacts", indeed. Actually, here's a real life Professor of virtual culture
. Cute too.
[pseudo-]Random content generators
- very interesting stuff. I'd love to see human beings act on this content as a sort of selector of aesthetics a la Richard Dawkins
. Be sure to check out the randomly generated comics
...harnessing the power of Lava Lite® lamps to generate truly random numbers....
That's a bold statement, but who am I to doubt the power of the lava lamp
. The mathematical purist may disagree with the "truely random" part, but this geek speak
convinced me that LavaRand can handle all my random number needs.
